Diss and Roydon testing rollout is to be scaled back
The surge testing programme in Diss and Roydon will begin to be scaled back this week, Councillor Graham Minshull announced this morning.
As from 7pm this evening the test centre at Diss Youth and Community Centre will close and be used as a roaming pop up centre, visiting different parts of the town.
Updates on where the centre will be shall be announced on South Norfolk District Council's Facebook page.
The remaining test centres at Roydon Community Centre and Diss Leisure Centre will remain open, however they now will close at 5pm every evening, instead of 7pm.
The home testing collection points at Midwich and Roydon Church will close on Wednesday, meaning those who still need to drop off their tests must now go to Roydon Community Centre or Diss Leisure Centre.
Speaking to Park Radio this morning, Mr Minshull said the rollout has been an incredible success, but urged the 20 per cent of people that had not yet returned their home tests to do so.
"We are enjoying about 80 per cent return on testing kits, be we need to other 20 per cent back so I ask anybody who hasn’t to bring theirs back as soon as possible," he said.
